Hello my name is Colin, Thank you for visiting our website.
I set up the charity Little Heroes after my own experience of my little man Reece being diagnosed with cancer 2 weeks before his second birthday.
I can tell you I have never experience anything in my life so devastating and scary.
Childhood cancer has a very nasty reputation. As a parent of a child with cancer I understand the reality of this thing called Childhood Cancer
Its not just the pain from the disease that is hard to deal with it’s the treatment for cancer that inflicts pain onto our child’s body.
Often leaving us helpless to help.
Childhood cancer is responsible for killing more children and teenagers every year that any other disease, more that asthma, diabetes and Aids combined.
Today 10 Babies and young children will be diagnosed with cancer
1 in 4 will not survive
Of those that survive 1 in 3 will need long term follow up care.
Today almost 80% of all children diagnosed with cancer can be cured!
Even with these advancements children still suffer whilst undergoing treatment.
On average there are 10,000 children today undergoing some form of treatment for cancer.
We try to make a difference.
We don’t offer a cure or treatments.
We give a simple smile… a bit of hope.
